California's Master Plan for Early Learning and Care

Monday, January 25, 2021
10:30am - 12:00pm

Since coming to office, Governor Gavin Newsom has made bold investments in California's children- from $1.8 billion in early childhood to a comprehensive paid family leave policy. Last year, Governor Newsom's budget allocated $5 million to develop a California Master Plan for Early Learning and Care, aiming to provide a roadmap for improving its early childhood education and care system. The deep disparities exposed by COVID-19 and the surge of the movement for racial justice in 2020 have altered California's early childhood landscape in critical ways, underscoring the importance of addressing equity and inclusion in the Master Plan report.

Over the past year, under the Early Childhood Action Research Team's guidance and with the Early Childhood Policy Council's input, state leaders have been working hard to develop this blueprint unveiled on December 1, 2020.

As part of the launch of the Master Plan, the state is excited to share the report's findings with the public and early childhood stakeholders throughout the state while also lifting various public-private partnerships that will support the vision of the new plan in 2021 and beyond.

Join us for a webinar on California's Master Plan for Early Learning and Care to:

  • Understand the key components of the Master Plan and the recommended steps necessary to establish universal preschool, better support the early childhood workforce and low income-providers, and improve overall equity and access to quality learning and care, among other areas
  • Engage in discussion with funders and early childhood stakeholders to learn how philanthropy can educate, advocate, and partner with government to ensure the most effective and equitable implementation of the Master Plan
  • Engage with various leaders from the Master Plan team from the Governor's Office, Department of Health and Human Services, and Early Childhood Action Research Team
  • Learn about the various public-private partnerships opportunities that were included within the plan as well as those announced alongside it to catalyze future collaboration
